A COMMUNITY garden is due for a New Year face lift.
The garden, in Walker Street, Hoole is to be transformed thanks to a £25,000 contribution from Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd (WREN) and financial support from the city council's Upton, Newton and Hoole area committee and nearby developments.
The park has raised concerns about anti-social behaviour.
The area committee has been working with residents, community safety wardens and local businesses to tackle the issue and explore ways of reinstating the park as a valued community facility.
On offer are new trees and shrubs, the creation of new pathways and seating.
Local children are to provide art work for railings and residents will be involved in bulb planting.
“I am absolutely delighted that WREN has chosen to support this and look forward to seeing a safe and attractive leisure space that everyone can enjoy,” said area committee chairman Cllr Adrian Walmsley (Con, Newton St Michael’s).
Richard Smith, project manager with WREN said: “We are looking forward to seeing the completed project. The area is a key open space for the local community and we hope it will be enjoyed for many years.“
